    Just couldn't get into Vikings. Maybe I didn't try hard enough. Thought I'd be hooked after seeing that epic title scene and music.

    Seemed a little contrived (great cinematography like you said though).

    Then again, I only watched 18 minutes.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    7 Things You Need To Know About The Deadliest Character In 'Game Of Thrones'

    With Oberyn set up to play a pivotal role (if you haven't watched the latest episode yet, please do so immediately!) we thought we'd flesh out what makes the Dornishman such a legend. Trust us, the backstory justifies his infamy...

    (7 backstory elements)

    No 2: He's one of the most feared fighters in Westeros.
    He was deadly at the age of 16 and only became more so as he grew older. He fought not only in tournaments and duels and battles around Westeros, but also spent a significant amount of time in Essos.

    He traveled in the Free Cities, where he learned the art of poisons; he fought with the famous mercenary company, the Second Sons (now led by Daario Naharis in service of the Daenerys) before forming his own company.

    His weapon of choice is pretty daunting, too: "The spear was turned ash eight feet long, the shaft smooth, thick and heavy. The last two feet of that was steel: a slender leaf-shaped spearhead narrowing to a wicked spike." (Quote from Storm of Swords, Tyrion chapter)
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    This one takes a little commitment to get to the funny part, but fortunately I loved the scene so I didn't mind watching it again.

    PS, spoilers, violent content, etc.
